Summary

it is 1981. Biscuit lives with his mother, brother and sister. He helps out by hustling on the frontline for the south London badman, Nunchaks. He doesn't want to be doing this for the rest of his life but it's difficult to get out of the trap.

'East Acre Lane' is a gripping thriller set in a society on the verge of exploding. As the patience of the community breaks and the riots begin to erupt, Biscuit has to make a choice that could change his life forever.
